Guillermo del Toro’s new Netflix horror anthology series Cabinet of Curiosities dropped on Netfix October 25th, just in time for Halloween.  To celebrate, we caught up with DGC Ontario Director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice, Hannibal) to discuss his work within the “cinema fantastique”, why he’s always been drawn to genre film, and “Graveyard Rats,” his creepy crawly short for  Cabinet of Curiosities. 

Vincenzo Natali gained international recognition in 1997 with the surreal sci-fi thriller Cube. The film earned multiple Genie Award nominations, won the award for Best Canadian First Feature at the Toronto International Film Festival, and went on to become a cult classic. His film Splice, starring Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody, was the highest-grossing Canadian feature film in English in 2010 and was nominated for Best Science Fiction Film at the 37th Saturn Awards. Vincenzo is also a prolific television Director, helming critically-acclaimed episodes of Hannibal, American Gods, Westworld, Locke and Key, and more. His most recent work, in addition to Cabinet of Curiosities, is directing the pilot of the Amazon sci-fi series The Peripheral and is also an Executive Producer.
